junk mail

  highside 09:02 01 Jun 2010

After some years of no spam etc at all I have suddenly started to receive daily emails from all sorts of software sellers, presumably a site I have used has sold my email address on.
So at the moment when one arrives I go to Tools-Safety and put it into the Blocked & Bounce Back list.
Is there a better a way? also is there a limit of entries into this list?
Win Live Mail/Win 7 64 bit-kept updated/Full Norton Internet Security (updated)/IE 8
Thanks for looking.

Bounce Back list.

Thats the first thing you DO NOT want to do, it just tells them you are there...

Log onto your ISP site and see how you can blacklist unwanteds.
If you use an E-mail client - Outlook Express/Thunderbird for example make sure that it is switched off so that no E-mail downloads.
Then look at your mail on the ISP site- If you use TalkTalk/AOL you may be doing this already,
Then go the thread and and delete routine on the site and Blacklist the stuff you do not want.

Thanks for replies.
Like the look of mailwasher, will it conflict with Norton antisapam at all?

As norton antispam doesn't seem to be doing very well, turn it off and just use mailwasher...

Downloaded mailwasherfree - very good no conflicts with anything else. So impressed I may buy the pro version to enable protection of two accounts. Thanks
